Sure I can. It then compiles the foo/bar/somefile.ext into somefile.pdf
but this somefile.pdf will be in the current directory along with
somefile.aux, somefile.log a possibly others :(

It is because these files are generated to the current directory.

If only it did that :(

I have not found a way to generate all the files in other than current
directory. That is why I want to do

cd target/dir
pdflatex ../../somefile.tex
cd ../..
exit %status%

in the action. Actually after a sucessfull run I want to grep
somefile.log for notifications about unresolved references. In that case
I need to run the tool again (I believe up to 3 times).
